Austrian microphone manufacturer LEWITT announces 2 small diaphragm new condenser microphones ideal for home studios, the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR priced at $99 and $149 respectively.
The LCT 040 MATCH is a single pencil mic that will also be available as a stereo pair package. The LCT 140 AIR has been created to bring new heights of precision to recording engineers at every level.
The LEWITT LCT range have been designed to combine innovation with hard-wearing Austrian craftsmanship. The outcome is a range of small and large-diaphragm condenser and tube microphones offering an alternative to older, traditional designs. With these 2 new mics now for the first time, that same level of LEWITT quality will be available to home studio owners wanting to record acoustic instruments without blowing the budget.
The LCT 040 MATCH has been designed to offer the definition and pinpoint accuracy for which the celebrated LCT range is known, but with a new stripped-back, ergonomic design for maximum positioning flexibility even in the most restricted spaces. The custom-designed capsule has been optimised with instant transient response for the natural qualities of acoustic instruments; ranging from acoustic guitars to drums and strings, every moment is captured in fine, crisp detail, with pleasant high-end.
The new LCT 140 AIR, lists amongst its features, exceptional off-axis sound suppression, pre-attenuation and low-cut filter. The SOUND toggle, which allows users to switch between a linear response or a nuanced, ‘airy’ mode for open, more characterful recordings.
Roman Perschon, founder and CEO of LEWITT told us…
“We take great pride in the fact that LEWITT microphones are loved by an expanding community of high-profile engineers who want a modern alternative to old technology, and now we feel the time is right to bring the same design ethos to everyone who loves sound as much as we do. With the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR, more people than ever before will have the chance to experience LEWITT, and I can’t wait to introduce them at the NAMM Show.”
NAMM visitors will find the full LEWITT range at booth 11110 in Hall A alongside its US distributor, American Music & Sound.
